Numerous store brand supplements aren’t what their labels claim to be, according to an ongoing investigation that subjected popular herbal supplements to DNA testing.

The investigation, led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, focused on a variety of herbal supplements from four major retailers: GNC, Target, Walmart and Walgreen Co.
